People will have to wait a bit longer for their bins to be emptied, with collections across most of Norfolk once again cancelled because of the weather.

Bins in most parts of Norfolk have not been emptied since the worst of the bad weather blasted in on Tuesday.

Broadland District Council said there would be no collections today, but that crews would begin collections on Monday.

They said: “Whether your collection is due or has been missed, please have your bin out by 7am. Thanks for your help and patience and sorry for the inconvenience.”

Norwich City Council tweeted that they did not expect to be any bin collections today. But they advised people to leave their bins out and they would be collected as soon as possible.

Breckland Council said bin collections remained suspended until Monday.

South Norfolk Council said bins would not be emptied today, but crews would be working, weather permitting, on Saturday and Monday to help catch up with outstanding bins.

Bin collections across North Norfolk have been suspended until next week because of the continuing of adverse weather conditions.

They said collections were expected to restart on Monday, with priority given to dealing with black bins.

They said: “Households due to have their black bins emptied next week should expect a normal service.

“Households due to have their recycling collected next week will have any remaining black bins dealt with first.

“These properties should leave any unemptied black bins out for Monday morning, and the crews will deal with them as soon as they can.

“People who receive these late collections can leave excess rubbish next to their bins – but please leave only a reasonable amount, and make sure it is bagged up.”

Great Yarmouth Borough Council has also cancelled collections today. They said: “Sorry but vehicles are 26 tonnes, so it’s risky to take onto slippery residential roads. If your bin is normally collected this week please take in for now.”

But there is good news for people living in King’s Lynn. King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council started collections again today. They are focusing on the King’s Lynn area for now, but will be catching up with other areas in the days ahead.
